Natural Skin Shop: Alpha Light Essentials / 18 Actives Dynamic Eye Pack review and giveaway!

This is my second review for Natural Skin Shop. I just love them. They have pricey products but they are definitely worth it. They use the absolute best ingredients possible. They work wonders on your skin! This time I got to review Alpha Light Essentials and the 18 Actives Dynamic Eye Pack.

Alpha Light Essentials:
The Essential is designed for the skin care minimalist. Just an exfoliator and treatment serum for the essential and basic 2 steps of any good skin care routine. It renews and rejuvenates your uneven skin pigmentation with an advanced AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) Exfoliator. It combines Glycolic and Lactic acids to help gently sweep away dead skin cells. The exfoliation clears the path for treatment products to hit their target and correct discoloration. This product also contains color correcting ingredients for maximum effectiveness. You use it once a day, every day and see your skin revert to a time when there was only one, even tone. Night time is the best time to incorporate a “daily peel” because your skin rejuvenates while you sleep. The second second, the serum, is quick absorbing and perfect for all skin types. It works to lighten your skin and stop the darkening process from starting. It stops the chain reaction of skin discoloration by preventing future dark spots and uneven skin tone in the future. You apply the serum after exfoliation and it allows the serum to penetrate to work deep within the skin layers and reverse the damage. The key active ingredients targets the necessary skin cells to diminish discoloration, reduce the level of pigment, and produce a more luminous skin tone. It has no harsh, hazardous bleaching agents because Alpha Light products work in tandem with the body’s own chemistry to correct darkened, discolored skin. This two piece system costs $64. It's well worth the price!

18 Actives Dynamic Eye Pack: Eye Essence Serum dark circle eraser & Faux Filler wrinkle reducer. It diminishes dark circles by stimulating circulation. It has proteins and peptides that strengthen skin. It prevents the formation of fine lines & wrinkles as well as plumps out deep indents, lines, folds, and hollowed out areas. It rewinds time! This two piece system costs $122. Also well worth it!

What I thought about both skin care systems: I am about to turn 26 and honestly sometimes I feel like it in my appearance. I have always looked MUCH younger than I am but I think it's catching up to me. I do have a couple acne marks/scars. I also am getting lines on my forehead and wrinkles around my eyes when I smile. I got in a car accident when I was much younger and have a bump on my forehead. That has always caused my forehead to wrinkle with every facial expression. Over time it's actually made my forehead get "fine lines". So, I was really excited when I got to try these products. Below you can see some of the lines and in the last picture was after I have been using the product for a month. My skin is much firmer and clearer after using these systems. Both systems you don't have to use much product. They go a long way. They make you look and feel great! I highly recommend both systems to my readers. You will be amazed!

These pictures are terrible but I didn't want to over edit them or anything so I left them alone.
